Babson excites me due to its highly accredited reputation within the business world. Many well respected professionals in this field are Babson alumni and in the future I can envision myself as a part of this esteemed group. I can see myself succeeding at Babson due to my work ethic. Throughout high school I pushed myself academically and with extra-curricular activities. These activities include playing sports, clubs and working at my local mountain. All of these activities have helped me understand organization, time management, how to work with a team and other useful skills that can easily crossover into a workplace environment. Working retail at my local ski mountain really helped open my eyes to the world of business, even though it was only at the consumer level. I could actively see economic principles effecting customers buying habits and how goods were stocked. As I further my economic intelligence more of these principles become apparent to me. As a
For me accounting is personal. As an immigrant, life has seldom been easy. It has been marked by continuous sacrifice, unfamiliar settings, and unnerving trials. From an early age I witnessed my parents painstakingly keep track of their income and expenses in order to make ends meet. Such trying moments were the early signs of my inclination towards accounting. In essence, these painful experiences stirred something within me, something that culminated into a passion. After exposure to numerous accountants and academic courses, I was firmly convinced accounting was my calling. In pursuing my calling, I attended Miami Dade Honors College and earned an Associate of Arts Degree in Accounting. Afterwards, I transferred to Florida International University, where I hope to acquire my Bachelor of Accounting in April 2018.
At the Introduction to PD workshop I identified two broad reasons why I decided to pursue my MBA. The first was to develop my competence as a manager. The second and more important reason was to advance my career by making myself more marketable. The job market today is undoubtedly very competitive and I realised that a first degree was not sufficient if I wanted to 'climb the corporate ladder'. It is hoped that this MBA would help me to take advantage of any future opportunities when they become available. My personal development journey thus far has quite
The success and recognition that the school of Literature, Science, and the Arts has received over many decades has drawn me to the belief that this is the designated school for me. I have always dreamt of becoming a Michigan Wolverine and pursuing a college education in the field of biology and psychology. Given the level of difficulty of being accepted into this program, it has only empowered me to work more vigorously than ever before. There are several unique qualities that attract me to this specific undergraduate college: the various programs and majors it offers and the opportunity to be admitted to a higher-level institute within the university.
College is a very important time in anyone’s life. It’s a time where boys and girls turn into men and women. It’s a time where people learn valuable life skills, and how to live on their own. Choosing the right college is an incredibly important decision. Colleges come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, specialties and strong points, as well as cultures and diversities. As a senior that will soon be on my way to a college is campus, it is vital for me to figure how I will fit in with the rest of the student body. As a human I have a unique mindset, just like everyone else, complete with values and morals that differ from everyone else’s. I also have a unique high school repertoire which encompasses many of my academic
I came to the United States last year and it has been an extremely rewarding experience. I have truly enjoyed working and living in a multicultural environment. In my professional life, I have taken on greater challenges and led a team in the expansion of a new business. I also joined the Toastmasters where I honed my English communication skills and made new friends. My greatest delight is that I found my life’s passion.
I vividly remember my first time visiting my high school and the school ambassador who took me to all of her classes and showed me around the school. I knew from that day that I wanted to be in her position in the future, and passing down the kindness I have received from her to other students. That’s how I ended up volunteering at the office of admission and it became one of the highlight of my high school experience. It was such a rewarding experience as I was able to represent my school and create a sense of community with the other admission office volunteers. I would love to continue helping others to the best of my ability here at Pepperdine and I am confident I will be able to assist applicants and prospective students through sharing my own experiences and knowledge.
Pursuing an MBA will not only allow me to be promoted within the technology field, it will also help me achieve my educational goals. As a first-generation college student and business professional, I strongly believe in the opportunities that an education provides. I am the first college graduate in my family and want to be the first with an advanced degree as well. Having an MBA will provide better opportunities for financial security. It sets the standard for what is achievable and is one step closer to ending the cycle of poverty that my family has
One of my purposes is getting my MBA. I can achieve this purpose best by focusing on what my goal is in life.
The University of Pennsylvania has one resource that no other establishment in the world can offer to me: the highest caliber of intellectuals in my field. Given that I intend on attending the Wharton School of Business and with the goal of becoming a financial manager, and then rising further along corporate ladder, I must be at the absolute forefront of the field and gain as many connections as I can along the way. Not to be used, people are not tools. But, I am NOT one who is content to let themself fall into the pit of mediocrity And I recognize that the success of one individual can inspire success in those around them. Thus, is researched the different groups that students have put together for the mutual benefit of both University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School of Business and the multitude of opportunities they present myself: investment experience, interdisciplinary education, and furthering my understanding of the Chinese economy.
The world of finance and business is a complicated and ubiquitous arena, and the axis around which most of our society’s most important issues move. Having worked for a number of years in a multitude of administrative positions, I feel in many ways as though I have merely skimmed the surface of a field that is brimming with professional opportunities. The pursuit of a Master’s in Business Administration will enable me access tap previously unused resources in my own skills set, giving me the formal education to take my knowledge to the next level.

After a great deal of self evaluation, I have resolved to pursue management studies. Management studies have never been my goal until I graduated, saying otherwise would be just an equivocation of the fact that slowly and steadily I started considering management studies to accomplish my long term goals and enhance my management skills. After experimenting with my career and meeting with many business enthusiasts, It was certain by the time that I want to pursue with MBA, to excel. Along with that my ultimate professional goal of discovering myself as a key decision maker, emboldened my decision.
Such an experience will broaden my perspective to face challenges in the global financial services industry and bring in unlimited opportunities to innovate and add value. As there are many financial services provided by Banking and Financial institutions, my long-term aspiration (over 5 years, post-MBA) is to deepen my understanding of functions such as Corporate Banking, Investment banking and Retail Banking, identify my core competencies in such a diverse industry and head one of these functions in a multi-national financial services corporation.
